Welcome to the forum.

Looks like the only thing you haven't checked yet is power.
Remove the battery, then boot/run from AC only.
And remove AC, then boot/run from battery only.

Re: Tin foil in IPS screen replacement (LP125WH2-SLT1)

The first 2 pictures are fine, that 'tinfoil' needs to be there. But the other pictures with tape look like the screen has been tampered with.

Re: Finding a high resolution T61 with intel graphics?

That's a 'native' Merom mobo.
If you ever need it, you must put in a Merom CPU (T7100/T7300/T7500 etc) first, then apply Middleton BIOS.
Only then can you put in a Penryn CPU.

If you remove the keyboard you can see the HD/SSD through the chassis.

AFAIK it's a tiny opening on the left side, near the front, in which you push a paperclip or similar, to reset the laptop.

They have excellent documentation and send you instructions if you buy a key from them.

Re: ThinkPad T4* RAM

The T40-T42 need PC2100 SDRAM.
PC2700 might work, but will only run at PC2100 speed.
And XP doesn't always like much more than 1GB of RAM, so that could be your problem.

That BOE screen probably needs a lot more material removal, it is bigger than the commonly used LG, which just about fits.
